The annual event, which is in its 44th year, is very popular locally but has been hampered by wet and windy weather in recent years.

However, visitors enjoyed viewing a variety of classic vehicles, ranging from tractors from bygone days and classic cars and bikes, under clear skies when the event was held at Smeatharpe Airfield over the bank holiday weekend.

Tractor pulling also made a welcome return and younger visitors enjoyed a range of attractions including a helter skelter and swing ride.

There was also wood sawing, arts and crafts, fair organ, auction ring events and demonstrations, children’s entertainment and a harvesting display.
